ABERCORN maintained their one point lead at the top of the Derry & District Premier Division table with a convincing ‘away’ victory over Culmore on Sunday.

Top of the Hill Celtic recorded a slender win over a spirited Lisahally side as Trojans overcame Porter’s and Oxford United Stars made short work of Don Bosco’s.

Meanwhile, in the First Division, a Paul Gormley goal for Rocking Chair saw the Waterloo Street side defeat Derry City while the other joint leaders, Crescent, were held to a draw by Killea Nixon’s-Corner.

There were also wins for Phoenix, Strand United and A.O.H. Harps.
